F.R.E.D. program to begin in February

01/26/2007 - LOUISA — Lawrence County will be hosting the Father's Reading Every Day (F.R.E.D.) program, which creates awareness of the need for fathers/father figures to read to and with their children daily.

Research shows that children do better in school when their parents are involved in education. The F.R.E.D. program will allow fathers and children to strengthen the bond in the family and allow both participants to increase their vocabulary. It will also create an atmosphere in the home, through reading, that is positive and structured, while being educational and fun.

The F.R.E.D. program will begin in February. Participants will be required to attend a kick-off meeting and then keep a reading log over the following four weeks. After completion of the program, a celebration party will be held and each child will receive a free book.

If you are interested in participating in the F.R.E.D. program, contact the Lawrence County Cooperative Extension Office at 606-638-9495.

The Lawrence County Extension Office has received a grant for this program, so there will be no charge for participating.
